Question about Digital Audio Rocbox MP3 Player
Can anyone help me. I have a digital audio player mp4. I can't download music onto it and when I do then it tells me "format error" I don't know much about mp3 or mp4. so can anyone please help me????????
from when i first bought mine...
does it show as an MP3 player or MTP device, if it is the second one you'll need to do some tinkering in the settings. the instructions for this are in the small manual [no really]. It'll then behave normally.
Otherwise MTP devices require you to put files on in a different (and slightly arcane) way they also may need to be 'official' DRM files rather than CD-rips
hope this helps in some way and does not confuse

SOURCE: Put music onto MP4 Player
When i connect my mp4, nothing pops up i have to go to my computers and then its under removable disk (f:). How do i put music into it if does not say anything about mp4 or music and where do i get my music from?

I had this same problem. If I tried to turn the player on, it just gave me the "format the player" screen. If I turned it off (by removing the battery if necessary) and plugged it into a USB port, it could still be read as a flash drive. I could copy the files to a backup folder on my computer and then (using Windows) I could right-click on the drive and choose Format. When it was finished, I disconnected it from the computer and turned the player back on and it was able to boot normally (it took a little while, but it worked). After rebooting, it automatically recreated the MUSIC.LIB, MUSIC.SEC, SETTINGS.DAT system files and the VOICE directory. I plugged it back into the USB port and copied the music back onto it and it worked fine. So... back up the data and format the player...

To do a search on your computer just goto START, then SEARCH. Click on "All Files and Folders". In the search box, type in *.WAV or *.MP3. This will search your entire computer for WAV files or MP3 files. To convert WAV into MP3, you will need to download a program from the internet that cnverts WAV into MP3 files. Just goto google.com and type in WAV to MP3 converter and should be able to download free converters....

Tips for a great answer:
For your CD collection, you need to convert your CDs to
mp3 music files onto your computer or download them from the Internet and then
copy them to your MP3 player.
You can do this using Windows Media player and Rip the CDs - Media Player will create a MP3 music file for each music track.
